Jake Jackson is no stranger to a rave. He has been making waves through the London rave scene, with residencies and playing at top underground events such as Solace Sounds, Shed Series and Outr Space. You can always find him behind the decks with an eclectic mix of garage, disco, house and minimal beats and this week is no different! For the 10th mix in our GROUNDED series, Jake Jackson is serving up an hour long mix to kick off the week. Find out more about his passion for music and getting on in lockdown...
What style of mix have you gone for?
Upbeat, bouncy, big bass lines with groove throughout. There is a mix of house, garage and minimal tracks.
What inspires you to do music?
The feeling music provides is what inspires me to do music. When you hear the right track at the right time, in the right place there is no feeling like it and I want to recreate that for people as much as I can.
What's your favourite part of the mix?
My favourite part has to be the switch from 33 minutes to 35/ 36 minutes. I don’t usually play such thumping, grimey gun finger music, but I felt like switching it up for this set and I love how it sounds. It would explode on a dance floor at 2am!
What’s your top tip in isolation?
Build routine into your days. Everyone has had to change their routine no matter what they do and to stay productive, positive and sane routine is needed. Even if you change your routine daily you need plans, targets, goals to aim for to make sure that you are progressing and staying positive.
What’s the first thing you’ll do when we are no longer Grounded?
Have a big old party with my pals, who knows when it will end!
